that time again... Draft Central is hopping !
The long awaited date is finally here, as teams have been making
moves in preparation for the Draft and the new season, where everyone is currently tied at
0-0-0 in the standings !!
The 2018/19 FBF Annual Rookie Draft is on the horizon, and remains
to be seen which one of the top two NBA prospects will go #1 overall, C Deandre Ayton or
PF Marvin Bagley III, but both appear to have the talent to help their new teams shine !!
The NBA Draft Combine
provided some potential insight on how the most recent crop of NBA newcomers may work out
on the big stage.
Rainmakers make it two...
Andres took their first Division Title this season, and turned that into ring number two,
their second in three years, after besting Carolina in five games.
The Rainmakers ability to add that additional
banner in the rafters, was as a result of their guard duo of James Harden and Jrue
Holiday, both in the top three scoring in the series averaging 45 and 36 Fpts/G
respectively. Harden was named series MVP.
For the St Bernards, they could not match No Carolina's
juggernaut like scoring in the series, and fell behind early, managing to avoid the sweep
however ekeing out a win in game four.
All in all however, it was a great season for the
Saints, culminating in their first trip to the Championship Finals, and were led in
the series by C/F LaMarcus Aldridge.
We now officially embark into the off-season, with the
NBA Playoffs tipping off soon... Next on tap in the FBF is the Draft Lottery show, set for
Tuesday May 15th, followed by the NBA Draft on Thursday June 21st.
